Jump the two wires going to the switch and that will leave the wi fi on all the time.

Wifi stopped working, it says that no wifi card installed.. It stopped working all of a sudden

check to be sure you don't have a switch on the front, sides or top that shuts off the wireless card. Or look for the wireless symbol on the top of your keypad and click it. If that doen't work then hold the FN button usually found near the bottom right corner of the keypad, then while holding that button click on the wireless keypad and it should come back on. If you don't have an actual switch to turn on and none of the procedures I mentioned works then the wireless card is damaged and you'll have to have it replaced or use a wireless usb nic card. Good luck

I did every thing but my wifi dosen't work

please explain, what you mean by doing everything, did u reinstall your operating system and install the correct wifi drivers? if yes then probably you did not switch on the wifi button. If you check on your keyboad there is an key labelled FN (function key) it is ussually on the lower left side just next to your ctrl key. Now look fo a key with a wifi symbol on it, this key is usually located on the top line keys. now press the function key and the wifi key at the same time to activate wifi. Some laptops actually have a wifi switch that needs to be switched on for wifi to be activeted

if all this does not work check on the device manager if the drivers installed are the correct ones, if not you will have to download the correct drivers and re install. If you experince any problems, send me your laptop brand name, and model and i'll assist.

I m unable to connect a wireless connection in my acer laptop

Check that the Wireless button on laptop is enabled, this turns on/off wifi

Check that you have put the correct wirless password in, you can find this in your router under wireless settings or on the back of the router or in the letter you got with your ineternet

Have you had the wireless working before and now it doesnt work or?

Hi there !

There is a switch button for wifi. Have you switch it on? If not, turn it on.

If yes, do you enter code password in secured connection. if not just enter the correct password.

I hope it helps you.

most pc's differ,some have just one button that switches wi-fi on/off.mine uses a hotkey sequence Fn-F2.consult manufacturers site/manual for correct key/sequence--good luck!

Wi fi

Could you make sure that wifi switch is turned on.

This will be physicall button on the laptop of function keys combination that enables wifi.

If wifi switch is on you should be able to see wifi networks in range. IF you see networks but can not connect this will be network security issue. MAke sure that wireless network router is properly setup and security key you enter is correct
